Currier & Ives Thanksgiving

Greetings, everybody! Hope you had a pleasant weekend and are refreshed and ready to create using our latest item for Thanksgiving.
This time, we feature the cropped version of that famous old Currier & Ives print, "Home To Thanksgiving." It was cropped due to messy margins which would not clean up properly via digital means, but still looked so new on its own, it was decided to make two versions of it for you, one in sepia, and one in the original look.
Don't worry- we managed to save the print, if not its margins, so you'll have the actual look of this old fashioned farm scene to its margins. 
Both colorways are set at a high enough resolution to allow for some enlargement at your local copy center, and are suitable for framing once the margins are obscured and/or cropped. 
This might make a fun card as well, especially for those of us living in areas of the country where it does tend to snow in time for this warmhearted holiday.
We hope you'll find lots of uses for this fun old graphic.

Happy Creativity!
